Primary News

See you at the Big Pool for the 1st Grade and UP Swimming Galas!
Swimming galas for the children in grades 1 - 5 take place in the big swimming pool next week. The Grade 1 Swimming Gala starts at 11:30am. All UP swimming galas start at 11.00am and are expected to last between an hour and an hour and a half. Children are free to leave school after their event.

4th Grade trip
4th Grade will be visiting Estadio de Delicias on Monday to meet the Santa Tecla Football team. They will spend the morning learning about tactics, teamwork and discipline as well as having a chance to practise some skills and play a small game. Children will also be interviewing the team about life as professional footballers. A fantastic opportunity for the children to engage in some authentic learning as part of our World Cup IPC unit.

Prepa visit to the National Football Federation
Next Tuesday and Wednesday Prepa children will be learning more about the Salvadorean Football Federation which is the institute in charge of organising football activities in El Salvador. The children will also learn about our National Football Team and have the opportunity to play on their football fields. Children have shown enthusiasm for all the different activities we have prepared during our World Cup Unit and are certainly looking forward to spending the morning there.

2nd Quijano Assembly
We are looking forward to welcoming the parents of children in 2nd Quijano to their children’s assembly at 9.00am on Wednesday of next week. Please remember to use the emergency car park

Boy’s hair
The two week holiday is the perfect time for parents of boys to arrange to get their hair cut in order to meet the school regulations. Off the face, off the collar and over the ears. Thank you.

ABC World Cup shirts on Friday please.
On Friday 11th April children in primary should wear the football T shirts which they designed in school and wore for our ABC World Cup today. The children worked hard on their shirts and we would like another opportunity to admire them.
